ASK will do more than find one expert at a time for your business. We can source entire teams based on your company’s needs, through our variety of extensive Project Solutions.
Knowing how to plan a strategy, organize tasks and monitor a project from start to finish is the most important part of project management.
Without the necessary planning and prioritizing, the project could go on far longer than you want it to.
With agile project management skills, you’ll never have to worry about your team completing a project ever again.
What is Agile?
Agile is usually applied within software development projects, but agile practices can be applied in any sector in a variety of different ways. In regards to development, agile means taking an iterative approach to delivery of bitesize tasks throughout the entirety of the project. This way, it can be managed more effectively, as opposed to trying to deliver a project all at once.
Sounds pretty simple, right? It is when you know how to do it. But agile training and consulting is a complex task, which is why some of the biggest organizations all over the world are hiring teams of experts to ensure their employees are managing projects effectively, on time and to budget.
How do I know if my business needs agile training and development?
If your company has an in-house IT team, or a team of developers working on large-scale projects, agile project management will ensure all processes are monitored, managed and delivered successfully.
ASK will provide whatever it is your business specifically needs, from one key consultant to an entire team of experts. Our agile project solutions can be scaled up or down depending on your goals.
Contact us today to discuss your business objectives and project goals, and we will advise and guide you on the most innovative and cost-effective way to get there.
Gone are the days of wires being crossed between your development and operations teams.
One of the key areas of any development project, no matter how big or small, is ensuring DevOps experts are onboard to streamline the process.
All projects differ, depending on their size, timeline and goals - but incorporating DevOps and automation into your software development is an essential aspect of any strategy.
Do I need DevOps and automation as a project solution?
This all depends on the project at hand. DevOps helps to streamline the process between development and operations, while some enterprises are over-automating DevOps. The key is to find the perfect balance for your business.
Break down your processes - find out where the problems lie, and what you think could be automated. Choosing the appropriate automation tools - or developing your own - is all down your business strategy, and project goals.
If an essential part of your project is missing, we can provide DevOps and automation specialists to put your processes back on track.

Time and money invested in servers and in-house infrastructure can be a thing of the past thanks to the infamous “cloud”.
ASK has been working with cloud experts for years. That’s why there’s an element of surprise when we speak to an organization that hasn’t benefited from cloud enablement yet.
What is cloud enablement?
The cloud is a powerful business and project solution. Cloud enablement services transfer the entirety of a company’s IT to the cloud, meaning infrastructure, data, software and other resources are all in one place.
Not only is it cost effective for businesses, but it means everything can be accessed at any time, no matter where you are.
Other benefits of cloud enablement include:
Business operations are streamlined
Less money is spent on IT maintenance or troubleshooting tasks that come with in-house data centers and servers
Less dependency on in-house IT staff, meaning their time can be prioritized more effectively
The cloud can be accessed by any employee, on any device, from anywhere - meaning location will no longer impact business processes
ASK has worked with some of the most innovative and forward-thinking cloud experts in the industry. If you are considering cloud enablement for your organization, we can provide the best talent to help you get there.
Contact ASK today to discuss the most cost effective and realistic options for your company’s transfer to the cloud.
Organizations all over the world are using data analytics as a vital project solution to consistently keep their business ahead of their competitors. Why? Because knowing what their consumers like, want, need and believe in is what enables companies to retain their customers.
What is data analytics?
Data analytics, in layman's terms, is the process of reviewing and analysing data to discover patterns. From these patterns, businesses can make decisions about how best to move forward, based on the trends being shown.
Data analytics isn’t just one person sitting looking at data sets, trying to draw conclusions from them. It’s often highly advanced software and a team of people working together.
Put simply - data analytics helps enterprises make well-informed decisions.
